Shaving & Taking #5 Featuring Solstice

Shaving & Taking #5
From PAA (Original Formula)

Today I find myself without something new to review but no matter we have something that I think will please everyone. It’s from PAA the soap is called Solstice. A while back Douglas contributed to our Wet the Face giveaway with this shaving soap and he also included one for me to use. So this seems like a perfect time to use it once again. If you never had the pleasure of using this one you're missing out on a fantastic scent & lather experience.

Lagom - New From Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Lagom
I have to admit I watch a few YouTubers that do try on hauls. Some of them buy or if very popular get sent outfits from major brands to model. This young woman her name is Estelle Berglin she sometimes goes by the name Swea who is from Sweden is one of these YouTubers. In this one particular video she was discussing the Swedish word Lagom which means not too much, not too little, just the right amount, and is a philosophy that aims to balance, and those who practice it encourage that Lagom is applied to all aspects of life. Being part Swedish myself I thought maybe there is something to this by balancing one's life and then I thought maybe I can use this philosophy in another way.

Captain’s Choice - Island Time

Company: Captain’s Choice Product: Island Time

Today we look at something new from Captain’s choice perfect for the summer months called Island time. Although I only have the aftershave we can pair it with We the Face Hawaiian Tropic’s shaving soap.

The bottle for the aftershave comes in a four-ounce amber glass and as for the Ingredients: Alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance oils, essential oils and extracts, glycerin pretty simple formula that gets great results.

The sent is what would be found on a typical island I get pineapple as the top note which stays with you to the end. Also present are some other tropical fruits but I not able to pin them down. Overall very pleasant scent and not overbearing.

Vanilla Tobacco Tallow Version - Wet The Face

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Vanilla Tobacco Tallow Version

Today we have another tallow release called Vanilla Tobacco. When I started Wet The Face this was one of the first shaving soaps I offered. In the beginning, I didn’t know much about tallow but over six years I made it point to create a tallow product and that lead us to introduce our tallow pucks in 2019. We had amazing and helpful feedback which guided us to tweak the formula and make the change to the new soft soap tallow as requested by our customers.

Mag T - Magnetic Safety Razor

Company: MagT Product: Mag T 'DELTA' - Double Edge Safety Razor

When I first saw this new razor I was floored by its design. A striking new concept in safety razor style and functionality. I’ve never seen anything like it before. This razor uses magnetics to hold and keep the razor blade in place and something else the creator points out the magnetic properties also keeps the blade sharp. Oh, the truth in advertising well, two out of here ain’t bad.

Cate’s Bubbles - Ocean Grove

Company: Cate’s Bubbles
Product: Ocean Grove

In my journey into wet shaving, you never forget the first few shaving products you try. Seven years later some of these companies are long gone and some have stayed on not only just surviving but flourishing and being featured in Fortune 500 like Cate’s Bubbles from the humble beginnings to an all-out manufacturing facility truly an amazing accomplishment and the shaving soaps are in every wet shavers den.

Wet the Face - Stranger Shaves

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Stranger Shaves - Intense Almond

Our new release Stranger Shaves is inspired by the Netflix series called Stranger Things. My goal was to create one of the strongest scented soaps as an artisan can dare create and I think with this release that goal was achieved.

As soon as the lid is opened you will understand the power of this scent. You don’t even need to add one drop for it to fill the room it’s that strong.

Sometimes shaving can place you into the upsidedown and with this Intense Almond scent, it just might. I will say this is the strongest scented soap I have ever created and released. If you love almond scents then this one is going to knock your socks off!
